Becoming Whole


When we live to love…new life and unity are in progress.

Luke 21:29-31

Jesus told his disciples a parable. “Consider the fig tree and all the other trees. When their buds burst open, you see for yourselves and know that summer is now near; in the same way, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near.


Jesus consistently spoke about the “kingdom of God” as not some distant destination…but as something near and at hand.

Everything Jesus did was aimed at bringing the “kingdom of God” alive in the present.

He instructed his followers to pray, “Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). Please note the words, “on earth.”

God’s kingdom can only come “on earth” with our help.

Jesus wants our cooperation in this endeavor by following him in all his ways.

Reach out to those on the fringes.

Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, comfort the sick, and visit those who are imprisoned.

When we do this, just as when the buds of a tree first burst open, we will experience new life emerging in the present moment.

God’s kingdom will truly be near!
